Yesterday, Christie blasted the Dem focus on income inequality in Chicago in a rare public appearances since Bridgegate started. He called income equality "mediocrity" because everybody can have equal, mediocre salaries. Then he added, "I don't think the American people want income equality. They want income opportunity."

I saw the clip of his remarks and conceded there was some great oratory there. On "Morning Joe" today, there was affirmation around the table of Christie's delivery of his message. Even David Axelrod, of all people, said that CC had "a good day!" Pretty heady stuff coming from a major advisor to perhaps the greatest pure orator to occupy the WH.

Axelrod's praise, however, made no allusion to other Christie remarks about GWB.....

The guy won two national elections. How easy has that looked the last 8 years? He was an outstanding political candidate....and was grossly underappreciated by his own country and his own party as a politician. No one ever had a question where he stood, either foreign or domestically.

No one. Ever. No doubt about it.

Christie will speak at CPAC next month in MD, a year after he was snubbed by that event and not given a slot. What words of wisdom will tumble from his mouth? He'll probably "cross that bridge" when the time draws closer.
